Day 1

Meet in Nelson mid-morning and drive over to our accommodation in Golden Bay.

Our first day finishes with a sunset shoot at one of many stunning beaches in Golden Bay.

Day 2

Our second day commences with an early start to shoot the iconic Abel Tasman National Park at sunrise. We will spend the morning photographing this area before heading to a nearby cafe for a late breakfast. In the afternoon we will head out to Wharariki Beach to photograph Archway Islands at sunset.

Day 3

Our last chance for a sunrise shoot in Golden Bay so we will be up early to shoot one of a number of coastal locations at sunrise. If you would like to do some aerial photography, there is an opportunity to take a scenic flight (on demand and not included in the listed price). We then head inland to the Takaka Hill area to photograph limestone formations and beech forests before making our way back to Nelson to connect with late afternoon flights.
